  1. I have set up the forums to Automatically switch Detachment Members, 501st Members, and Members to "Inactive" Member Status, if they have not logged into the TFE forums within the last year. The Operations Protocol states: "Active status is maintained by logging onto said forum once a year. Failing this, the member becomes an inactive member of the detachment. All that is required to be reactivated is to once again log in." The old way of doing things, was to manually switch each member to Inactive, and once they returned, they had to request to be reactivated. With the new forums, this is now all automated, and your forum permissions will be reinstated as soon as you log back into the forums. If you were manually switched to Inactive, under the old system, then you will need to post a reply here, so I can manually switch your permissions back. Cheers, Det XO-
  2. Revan Armor Advices

    You do realize no one can see these pics right? If you click the internet address and post it instead, then people will be able to see your pics, other wise we cant see anything!
  3. Starkiller: Dark Lord's Armor (hoth)

    There are no gloves listed in the CRL, only seen in the whole costume view, but not listed as an item in the CRL, along with about 50% of the costume that is not listed in the CRL. The look is correct. I used normal non-pattern gauntlet gloves, and had a shoe repair shop alter them. I brought along the male ends of the coax cable and they are mounted into the gloves. With the cables, they go through the female ends of the coax mount, and then I spread out the wiring, so when you screw the female end onto the male end, the wires are caught between the two ends, so the cables won't come free. Even when I remove them for storage purposes, the female end stay connected to the cables. The vest you can see in the pics is either version 1 or 2 or both, I went on to make a total of 5 versions of the vest till I was 100% happy it had the right look and feel, and was durable not to come apart in really hot weather. The plastic light sabers, if you can see them, are my version one. I was not happy with them, so I altered the originals and made version 2: http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/lightsabers.jpg.html?o=162

    Try these, see if they work, some pictures are the old version I made, have not done any new picture in over a year, in reference to the 5th version of the vest and what not. http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/guantlet2.jpg.html?sort=3&o=235 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/guantlets.jpg.html?sort=3&o=236 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/armcable.jpg.html?sort=3&o=241 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/boots7.jpg.html?sort=3&o=245 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/belt1.jpg.html?sort=3&o=218 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/armor3.jpg.html?sort=3&o=219 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/armor2.jpg.html?sort=3&o=220 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/helm2.jpg.html?sort=3&o=223 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/skirt.jpg.html?sort=3&o=217 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/saberslit.jpg.html?sort=3&o=215 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/saberwithout.jpg.html?sort=3&o=210 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/hairbraid.jpg.html?sort=3&o=206 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/saberday.jpg.html?sort=3&o=205 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/spinearmor.jpg.html?sort=3&o=203 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/glovescrl.jpg.html?sort=3&o=200 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/cablecrl.jpg.html?sort=3&o=199 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/clawscrl.jpg.html?sort=3&o=198 http://s17.photobucket.com/user/TBSQRF/media/BandCcrl.jpg.html?sort=3&o=196
  5. The Detachment Leader will be making a statement about this later. Edit: http://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/topic/2574-2017-501st-legion-census-and-tfe-membership/ In the Meantime, so you know that your concerns have been seen and acknowledged, I will say this: The "TFE Det forum permissions" and the "TFE Det Roster Status on the 501st Census" are not the same thing. It will be updated, in due course, no worries. Det XO-

    I will stop you right there. When the CRL fails you, just like a costume without a CRL, go back to the old school method. Find your own approved reference materials, and make your costume just like your reference materials, and then submit your reference materials along with your costume pics, of you in costume, to your GML.
  8. Hello from Tampa!!!

    What i ended up using, only cost me about $50 total to make/alter, and they look really good, for what they are.
  9. Hello from Tampa!!!

    Also my Favorite costume, which I have. Not an easy build, but anything is possible. If you need places to buy certain aspects of this costume, or you would like to know how I built something myself for this costume, send me a PM. I am always happy to help another person with this costume. Cheers, Satya-
  10. Starkiller Dark Lords Armor?

    2 piece leather suit made to your measurements, with the correct look, $600.00 + Postage: https://www.facebook.com/swtoys.argentina/ He also sells the correct gloves for the costume for $400.00 Claws I made myself. Abdominal Armor I made myself. Linoleum covered in P leather, just hard to get the correct cut/look. In my final version (I made 5 different Versions till I got it right) I used black plastic clips and elastic cord to close the armor in the back. The elastic cord keeps it snug to your body, yet allows you to breath lol. Gloves/Gauntlets, I bought a pair of Gauntlets ($50), took them to a shoe repair shop and had them fabricate the right look for $100 (cheaper than $400 version). Skirt is easy enough to do yourself. Boots are the Black version of Anakin Skywalker boots, can find them on Amazon.com for $80-$100. The Padawan hair braid (if you make one) is a big pain in the ass, ass it gets tangled in everything. Trophy lightsabers I did myself as well, toysRus lightsabers or make your own with PVC pipes, remove the telescopic blades, add clips, alter the appearance to the desired look

    Helmet $400 Shoulders: $375
  12. Good job, I don't have access to the game or these pics, so more power to you in your journey in making this costume a reality. My gaming days are pretty much over, but I am still interested in getting my hands on this game for research purposes, some time down the road. Edit: I removed all the posts above about the confusion, so now your post starts off clean, and everyone knows what costume you are creating.
  13. Ukrainian Seventh Sister (WIP)

    No, "Seems a bit small" was just a comment in General in comparison to the Tank helmet next to it. The flaring out of the bottom of the helmet pic you just posted with the red arrows. seems off somehow? Maybe it is the fact that it is all red, maybe its the lighting? In all the reference pics I have looked at, the helmet doesn't look like it flairs out like that, seems more straight. and continues the form of the helmet all the way around. I think the tips of the bottom of the helmet should be further inward.
  14. Ukrainian Seventh Sister (WIP)

    Seems a bit small, but then again it would depend on the size of your wife. Needs to be proportional to the person wearing it, for the overall look to be correct. Can your wife fit her head in it comfortably would be the 1st point to consider?
  15. Lord of hunger. Yumyum

    Another Nihilus from Germany, I think we have had 3 so far this year approved in the German Garrison, could always use another one.
